The Starkey Hearing Foundation has suspended its international programs until further notice, according to an article in the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.

“Due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions and the inability to gather in large groups, Starkey Hearing Foundation suspended international programs,” President and Board Chair Richard Brown said in a statement that was published in the article. “Without the ability to safely travel, the Foundation is unable to give the gift of hearing to people around the world in the capacity it did prior to COVID-19.”

The suspension will affect 28 US employees, according to the article.
